Very underrated
14 April 2019 | by shannen-l-cSee all my reviews

Drifters is a sit-com following three young women in their 20s who are stuck in that awkward time of life when you're no longer a child but also not quite responsible or mature enough to make it in the adult world and are basically just trying to get your life together. Meg, Bunny and Laura are very flawed but relatable characters who are very straight-talking and somewhat obnoxious and attempting to 'make it' in the world. They adopt a 'fake it until you make it' philosophy and consequently get themselves into some hilariously awkward situations in front of their partners, colleagues, friends and family.

It's not a spectacular show, but it does what it says on the tin and provides some very funny moments. It does what only British comedies can achieve by never holding back in showing the more disgusting antics that young people get up to (particularly sexually) and the language they use. Face it - a lot of young people ARE sex-obsessed, they ARE vulgar and they ARE party animals, and that's what Drifters shows. It's refreshing to see a comedy that depicts three females who aren't perfect and who are shallow, self-centred, promiscuous, immature, loud and vulgar - qualities which are generally associated with young men.

For anyone that really wants to know what to expect from Drifters, it's basically a slightly older female version of Inbetweeners - there you have it.
